Look for the logo! The American Academy of Dental Hygiene, Inc., is the accrediting agency that sets the standards for quality for all dental hygiene continuing education courses offered at the RDH Under One Roof Conference, ADHA Center for Lifelong Learning, and more.

The annual meeting begins at 3 p.m. with a networking session, and the business meeting will follow immediately.

What’s in it for me?
Lois Dreyer, RDH, MSDH, recently reflected on her AADH membership:
“As a licensed dental hygienist of 44 years, I have spent the last 38 of them as an educator. If I were to cite one consistent thread that has colored my activities, it would be the commitment to my profession via those formal organizations that have fostered and supported the growth and awareness of the profession. As a practicing hygienist, I have been a member of ADHA, serving as a state delegate to my state and holding various offices at the local level.
“As an educator, I have been an active member of the New York State Dental Hygiene Educators Association, member of American Dental Educators Association and currently, I am the Eastern Trustee for Sigma Phi Alpha.
“In 2009 I was elected into the American Academy of Dental Hygiene.
“For me, what has differentiated this organization from others is the dedication its members have demonstrated to continuing education; not as an obligation for re-licensure but as a commitment to lifelong learning. As a member of the Governing Council, past chair of the Membership Committee and now a member of the Public Relations Committee, I have been exposed to a cohort of extraordinary people who have taken it upon themselves to encourage and mentor me throughout my tenures. Those members who have served in the same capacities were timely in their responses and unfailing in their offers to reduce the burdens that they understood to be part of the position. Fellow committee members are open to suggestions, ready and willing to ‘give it a go’ and always positive no matter the outcome of a vote.
“I hope to remain a contributing force in AADH for a good many more years and count myself lucky to be part of this family of oral care providers.”
